I had some difficulty composing this entry, realizing the need to be both concise, and easily understood. The focal point pertaining to Christianity will be made clear later in the post.
We, who were blessed to have been educated in schools largely free of the socialist agenda, know certain historical facts.
I was among many who were given an accurate truthful account of our founding fathers, the Constitution they forged, recognizing in their wording their mutual distrust of human nature, the need to create a small -Emphasize SMALL- limited government, subservient to the people, not a huge organization controlling our lives, speech, aspirations, and freedoms, granted by the Creator, not mere men.
Complacency and sloth overtook those of us who -complicit by our silence- didn’t voice our objections to the ever encroaching liberal attitudes, which spawned bigger and bigger government.
The states did not take responsibility for their internal affairs; initiating legislation pertinent to issues such as Education, Property rights, Environment, Agriculture, and Public safety; instead, they allowed government to establish a long list of departments – satirically known as “ABC” departments- tasked with these areas. Sadly, Americans bought into this “Pig in a Poke” , ignoring the adage of ‘caveat emptor’ – Latin for ‘let the buyer beware’.
Recently, I became much more concerned with the decline of sound doctrine in our nation, which is now worldwide.
Postings by various sources graphically demonstrate the explosion of Apostasy. In November, hopefully the (omitted) digital voting system with the danger of hacking ever present, will result in a responsible Trump administration.
However, a Trump presidency, while fully capable of halting our economic and security concerns, does not change the character of what is supposed to be a God fearing nation; while Trump supports churches, he is not a professed Christian.
America had courted Infanticide, Perversion, Counterfeit Marriage, and has allowed a generation of socialist, godless teachers to control our public schools. Their intent to pervert these young minds extends right down to PRESCHOOL.
This, in my opinion, is the single greatest threat in our fight to restore America.
An anemic, weak willed Christendom has emerged. It is the one element which truly scares me.
The scripture references you will see are directly from the Douay-Rheims.
This illustrates how Catholicism has God’s word, yet preaches a doctrine in direct opposition to what He intended for our instruction. “X”
A local Christian radio station, consisting mainly of music, does have a call in program, which I had been heretofore unaware of. I was listening to a caller who was all excited about having tickets for her family to go see Joyce Meyer. (does this ring any bells?) She is a prosperity preacher, with another gospel diametrically opposed to what the Bible teaches.
The call in program host’s silence was a shock to my system. No loving admonishment was forthcoming. None whatsoever.
If the hosts are ignorant of all the warnings and admonishments found in scripture, they are complicit, and part of the problem. The disciples warnings, and Christ’s testimony underscore the dangers of seducing spirits; this as much from within as from without the body of believers. We are to “Try the spirits”!
Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition Dearly beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits if they be of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
King James Version Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
ANY recall of New Testament warnings to the churches the disciples established, ought to have been enough for this station to have raised a red flag to the caller.
1 Timothy 4 KJV
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. …
1 Timothy 4 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
Now the Spirit manifestly saith, that in the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to spirits of error, and doctrines of devils, Speaking lies in hypocrisy, and having their conscience seared, Forbidding to marry, to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving by the faithful, and by them that have known the truth.
Seducers – All passages from the Douay-Rheims:
She kept him safe from his enemies, and she defended him from seducers, and gave him a strong conflict, that he might overcome, and know that wisdom is mightier than all.
Please note – The above is one of several books omitted from “Reformation” bibles; it was almost fifty years before I was able to obtain a Catholic bible to study and compare to my King James.
2 Timothy 3:13
But evil men and seducers shall grow worse and worse: erring, and driving into error.
For there are also many disobedient, vain talkers, and seducers: especially they who are of the circumcision:
2 John 1:7
For many seducers are gone out into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh: this is a seducer and an antichrist.
Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
The way of the cross plainly instructs us to expect trials, and tribulations; we are hated for His name’s sake:
And you shall be hated by all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall persevere unto the end, he shall be saved.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall put you to death: and you shall be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.
And you shall be hated by all men for my name’s sake. But he that shall endure unto the end, he shall be saved.
Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
That the way to destruction is paved wide, and the path to life is narrow:
Matthew 7:13 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition: Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat.
Matthew 7:14 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition: How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! King James Version Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Luke 13:24 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition: Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able.
One of the best passages is II Timothy, IT IS A DIRECTIVE, NOT A SUGGESTION:
2 Timothy 2:15 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
15 Carefully study to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
Moreover, we are to be alert, and watchful, to avoid other Gospels:
2 Corinthians 11:4
For if he that cometh preacheth another Christ, whom we have not preached; or if you receive another Spirit, whom you have not received; or another gospel which you have not received; you might well bear with him.
I wonder that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ, unto another gospel.
Which is not another, only there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
Prosperity preachers are indeed preaching another Gospel. This temporal life is BOOT CAMP, fraught with Water Moccasins, Leeches, Mosquitoes, and other plagues. It is NOT an amusement park, or a rose garden. Our prosperity is to be realized when He establishes His kingdom on Earth, when we are one family forever after in His presence.
There are many deceivers, too many Joyce Meyer’s, Joel Olsteen’s, and Benny Hinn’s, and far too few John Hagee’s, Alistair Begg’s, and Ravi Zacharias’s.
Don’t get me started on the charlatan Benny Hinn; I will decisively put the hammer down where he is concerned. Him and his false theatrics regarding the Holy Spirit.
I close with these verses from Ephesians:
Ephesians 6:10-17 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
10 Finally, brethren, be strengthened in the Lord, and in the might of his power.
11 Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil.
12 For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.
13 Therefore take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice,
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace:
16 In all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one.
17 And take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God).
Revelation 3:20 King James Version (KJV)
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Amazing testimony and words of Jim Caviezel, the actor who played Jesus in The Passion of the Christ film, which is the highest grossing R-rated film in history (and rightly so) just like the Holy Bible is the world’s best-selling book (and rightly so). Jim Caviezel is being interviewed by Dave Cooper.
This interview is highly inspiring. He talks about how God’s Providence allowed him to suffer several very painful injuries and illnesses when filming which allowed him to participate in and portray Christ’s Passion in a deep and real way. He tells about the shocking fact that he was struck by lightning at one point in the production. He gives advice to all Catholics about the seriousness of living the Faith, not trying to “fit in” with our neo-pagan society, and the necessity, joy, and honor of suffering for Jesus Crucified for the salvation of souls. His testimony is amazing and real.
Based on the following event posting, it appears that he did this interview on August 1, 2010: http://www.sdrock.com/events/7175/

The first feedback I received on it was someone who wrote: “Truly profound and breathtaking!”
Please Note: At one point in his talk, Jim said, “You are all going to Heaven.” A critic might object, “What if there was someone in the audience who hates Christ and will never repent. So is Jim saying that he is going to Heaven too?” Of course such an unrepentant person who hates God chooses Hell with their free will (as Jim said in his talk, “God doesn’t send anyone to Hell, they choose that place”) and Jim’s statement cannot apply to them.
So how are we to understand Jim’s sentence? First off, it is obvious from the context that Jim was addressing those among the audience who are of good will who desire to repent, live a virtuous life, and to take the necessary actions to reach Heaven. Furthermore, Jim expanded or qualified this statement later in his talk where he said that “God is asking for more conversion” and he reminded the audience that Heaven or Hell is a choice (on a related topic, he said that those in the production of the movie who were “fence-sitters” with regards to God who claimed they hadn’t made a choice were in reality making a choice by the mere fact that they were fence-sitting).
A person chooses Heaven or Hell with their free will and manifests their choice by the way they lead their life and by their actions, words, thoughts, and prayers. One must want Heaven to reach there and to reach it requires effort just like anything worthwhile in the natural world. Our Lord told us in the Gospels that arriving at Heaven requires the person to receive sanctifying grace through baptism (which of course is ordinarily sacramental baptism by water, but in rare cases can include baptism of blood or authentic baptism of desire), repenting of their sins, and living a virtuous life where they preserve this grace.
Hence, Jim’s statement must be understood with these qualifiers for his statement to be correct.
